Ah, Thanksgiving: Does there even exist a better holiday for bringing families together?

For most of us, it's a traditional occasion of gratitude and inordinate calorie consumption like any other festive American feast. For celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Nick Carter, on the other hand, it's most likely another imminent disaster waiting to unfurl at the dinner table.

Imagine it: your parents can't stand each other; your sibling(s) remains a constant, attention-stealing thorn in your side after all these years; and somewhere in between the passing of gravy and casual catch-up conversation, someone from your brood makes the bold move to hurl the obligatory insult — or more familiarly, the obligatory drink.

We couldn't be more thankful to be spared such chaos on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22 this year), but we can't be so sure how things will pan out for dysfunctional famous families like the Hogans, the Jacksons or the Gosselins. And they aren't alone, either.

Be happy you're not spending the holiday with the dysfunctional celebrity families in our gallery, below.
